Ok. I have brand new Technivorm thermal carafe drip brewer - arguably one of the best drip brewers on the Planet...

Up for grabs.

And all you need to do is write a story (including a digital picture or two...)

or send an audio MP3 - not to exceed 15 minutes in length.

About... a poignant aha moment in your life... that can have a coffee connection... or not. It can be about life, food, drink, or travel.

Our panel of judges are looking for an emotional bang or a solid belly laugh... or both.

Life is full of ups and downs - grand moments and bad moments.
And your power to win this will pivot on your ability to:
a.) Win votes and
b.) Influence our panel of cynical and jaded judges.
c.) Being a resident of CANADA
d.) And scoring on VOTER response

Word count: 475 to 575 words.

Voters will be encouraged to read all the stories and vote for 3! Voters need to give at least a sentence of energy towards each of the 3 choices.


RULES:
a.) No obvious use of Facebook and Twitter will be permitted (disqualification if detected) -- sure, by all means be creative... but be sure to instruct your fan club to be just a little bit more creative than "I VOTE FOR STORY #17!"

-SEE Very important VOTING rule above.


b.) Multiple votes from single network or IP addresses will not be tolerated - and I do not care how many people in your office are going to be rooting for you - be creative and get them to vote when they go home!

c.) Encourage your supporters to actually read some of the stories. And then vote for your 3 favorite citing reasons why.

d.) Canadian residents only for this one folks! I do not know who carries the TECHNIVORM in the U.S. - this is a Dutch made coffee maker that is CSA Approved - not necessarily for the U.S. Market - importation could be a nightmare.

Abuse of any of the rules can result in immediate disqualification.

CONTEST COMMENCES RIGHT NOW! September 14, 2009 and the writing portion ends at 5PM Pacific Standard Time on the 30th of September, 2009. Voting and judgment will begin on October 1, 2009.

Send your entries - Titled BREWER CONTEST ENTRY to my e-mail .

Good luck everyone!

Hmmm. No big burst of activity yet...

Will give this contest a week or so
and if there is no activity or entries, I will be giving away the brewer and a brand new Virtuoso Grinder to my local Hospital for one of the nursing lounges in critical care.

We have 2 entries so far - and this is not shaping up at all well. There is a fraction of the energy from the OTTO giveaway - and not surprising.

I am looking for a minimum of 10 entries by September 30th - and I do not think we are going to make it.

The OTTO is a sick prize...

and this is only one of the best drip brewers in the World
PAIRED WITH A VIRTUOSO GRINDER!

That is right folks...

UPPING THE ANTE NOW!

CANADIAN RESIDENTS ONLY:
Tossing in a Virtuoso grinder on this promotion...

Put that in your hash pipe and smoke it!

1 entry.

Not much interest in this at the moment.

5 days from pulling the plug.

Maybe will develop some excitement closer to Christmas.
